Professional Gear, for the Professional Athlete
  • Unique bag that trains bobbing, weaving, and slipping
  • Comes with long chain for swinging
  • Lightweight but still provides good feedback when hit
  • Excellent addition to bag workout routines
  • Comes filled

Discover the lost art of slipping punches and being virtually unhittable with this great defensive training tool. Comes fully assembled - no filling necessary.

The Maize Ball is used in a swinging motion and has a longer chain than the normal speed bag. The boxer pushes the ball and allows it to swing back and forth at him, performing slips and dodges while the ball oscillates. Slipping drills can be combined with counter punches and footwork practice.

Maize ball

What is the weight of the Ringside Maize ball? I am looking for a lightweight ball for STRIKING(fist and palm). 20-30lb would be nice. 60lb bags are too heavy for what I want. Any suggestions?

This ball is definately NOT for striking. It is meant to practice head movement and coordination. I would say it doesn't weigh more than 10 lbs.

Defense is Key

This is one of the lost arts in boxing; defense. The maize ball is a great addition to any home gym. Sadly, it is hard to find a maize ball in most gyms nowadays. It hangs up easy enough, but if you use the maize ball correctly; to practice slipping, counterpunching, and footwork. It will definitely give you a great workout and even help improve balance.

Speed Bags Expert FAQs
     
  1. What size speed bag is right for me?

    When choosing a speed bag the most important decision to make is size. The size of the bag has a great effect on the speed, rebound, and striking surface available to you.
    Bigger bags have a larger surface area and can thus be hit more routinely. However, smaller bags tend to rebound quicker and can provide faster training.
    Also consider the details of make and model when shopping. Some bags have an added attachment loop on the bottom to convert it into a double end bag.
    Beginners generally prefer larger bags as it increases the sweet spot for you to strike. Easier to hit = less frustration and more training. Experienced boxers tend to prefer smaller, quicker bags that allow them to hone their speed and accuracy to a fine degree.

  3. How high should I hang the bag?

    Most boxers recommend that you hang your speed bag up at mouth level. This provides a natural feel and keeps the arms working at proper angles. You want to be punching the fattest part of the bag (aka the belly), so having it too low could be problematic in that area. If your speed bag is too high however you will begin to feel unnecessary strain in your arms and neck.

  4.  
  5. How much should I inflate my bag?

    Inflating your bag properly is key to good, safe training. One problem that many beginners face is over-inflation. When a bag is too inflated it becomes stiff and can often hurt the hands.
    When inflating your bag, make sure you keep going until all the wrinkles in the material have been pushed out. However, be certain that you can press the bag with both thumbs and feel it depressing. If you cannot press the bag or are struggling to do so, you may have over-inflated it. If you have under-inflated the bag you'll notice a lack of good rebound, so simply add a bit more until you get the feel you want. Under-inflating is also a good strategy just in case your bag is going a bit too fast for you to keep up.

  6.  
  7. How do I use a maize ball?

    The maize ball is an interesting and inexpensive way to add variety to your training routine. As opposed to a speed bag where the goal is to strike with rhythm and timing, the maize bag swings freely back and forth on a much longer chain. This swinging provides you the opportunity to practice head movement to avoid being struck by the bag and also helps you work on foot movement and shadow boxing.
    The maize bag can be used for hitting practice but is more frequently used as a mobility and reactionary tool.
